Craft of spacemaking

Designed by Patricia Urquiola, Haworth’s stand at Orgatec created versatile and multifunctional office landscapes to suit the different needs of the workspace.

Craft of spacemaking
Everyone handles the same task differently and focuses on different features – personal preferences, organizational culture and location are only some of the influencing factors when creating workspaces.
That is why spaces look so different even though the nature of the task might be quite similar. The Haworth 2014 Orgatec booth explored these influences through the craft of spacemaking.

Designed by Patricia Urquiola, the space expresses clients’ requirement for versatility in design and product features, as well as colours and fabrics.

The Cappellini Café, located within the Haworth booth, is an elegant space highlighted by products such as Basket, Wanders’ Tulip, Dalia, Hi Pad, Tate, Juli 09 and Ribbon.

Cappellini is part of the Poltrona Frau Group, which was officially acquired by Haworth in June 2014.

The collaboration between Haworth and Cappellini at Orgatec showcases an outstanding collection of products and design innovations that address the new ways people are working and living. Combined, the companies address the many facets of office, home, and third space environments.

The evolution of Urquiola Openest collection was one of the Haworth’ highlights at Orgatec. Openest is an ensemble of lounge furniture for the new landscape of today’s work environments. Inspired by her passion to create new experiences for people, Openest elements present visual and tactile softness through its simple, graceful pieces.

Feather sofas and Chick poufs off er approachable comfort that adapts to people’s needs. Curved lines and upholstery stitching invoke the craftsmanship of residential furniture. Plume screens made from familiar textiles put the body and mind at ease. Sprig tables accompany seating elements where surfaces are needed.

No matter how the space is arranged, Openest provides functional furniture that looks neat and uncluttered, creating a refuge for working or relaxing.
